Yep. He gets his scores more from general play than ruck domination (although he's only a few hitouts per gam behind Max).

His handball and mark numbers are higher than the other two. More tackles than Max and more kicks than Brodie.
Yeah that's my point though, he plays like a wingman or a flanker. Which is all well and good while the game is clean and fast, but once the slog hits and there's a lot more repeat stoppages, I think he'll see a diminishment in his scoring.

The Ryder suspension comes at the right time for Marshall. He was about to be traded but gets 2 more weeks.

Sliding doors moment

Accurate. Brilliant. Unlikely.

We'll see, I guess. I reckon a few might be surprised by his output this year, irrespective of the conditions.

Annoyingly, Dixon's 75 last week was enough for me to trade Marshall to Preuss instead of Hayes. Outsmarted myself...

I think this is fine, Marshall not going to be a keeper anyway, Hayes will make some good money now and you only have to field him for one week, can possibly even loop Dixon/Hayes for the highest score

I'm honestly surprised there was no mention of Nank running at English and whacking him in the snozz at a ruck contest.

The alarming numbers behind $7m star’s drop off... and now there might be NINE better ruckmen​

Grundy has produced indifferent form across four games this season, averaging 17 disposals and 29.8 hitouts per game — his worst return in those areas since 2015 and 2016 respectively.

But the biggest part of his game that’s dropped off is his marking — averaging 1.8 marks per contest — the lowest return in his 10-year career.

Grundy failed to take a single mark or a lay a tackle in the Magpies’ loss to Brisbane on Thursday night as Collingwood dropped its third-straight game to fall to 2-3 on the season.

It’s meant scrutiny around the big man, who signed a reported seven-year, $7 million deal with the Magpies ahead of the 2020 season, has only intensified.

AFL greats Matthew Lloyd and Kane Cornes critiqued Grundy’s form on The Sunday Footy Show, with the latter stating he’s fallen from one of the top-two ruckmen in the competition down to “sixth or seventh.”

It will be interesting to see if he cares about external criticism.
